Where’s My Remote Control

Would you call 911 if you lost your remote control? Someone did.
Before we load up the shame cannon and rain scorn down upon this poor sap, I feel like we need the answer to a question that goes unanswered here. What was he stuck watching? If there’s an acceptable reason why the little buttons most televisions have just for times like this couldn’t solve the problem, it may well have been a legitimate emergency situation. Before you argue with me, I would just like to say Dr. Oz marathon. Yeah, that’s what I thought.

“Yes, we actually received a 9-1-1 call reporting a lost remote control,” an officer said in a Tweet. “Please remember to only call 9-1-1 in an emergency!” 
In a subsequent Tweet, police confirmed the caller did, in fact, find their remote eventually.

Thank god.
